greetingGreet all God’s people in Christ Jesus. The brothers and sisters who are with me send greetings.  All God’s people here send you greetings, especially those who belong to Caesar’s household. Philippians 4:21-22 NIV.


It’s more than saying “howdy”

There’s a deep appreciation inside

A figurative expression

A reunion, with arms open wide


Some are fake and phony

A tilt of head and a nod

Consumed too much of self

Relating not to man or God


Send your warmest welcome

Include a gift or a letter

First open the package

Watch the smile get better


A greeting and a welcome

Express the longing of a heart

Truly longing for their presence

Til uniting does its part


Hello, how are you doing

Asked with true concern

Makes a world of difference

When genuinely discerned


Learn to give a proper greeting

A warm embrace is given

Handshakes, hugs and smiles

That’s how we should be livin’
